Let’s Talk Dirty
The average person throws away nine times their own body weight in waste every year. As much as 30% of that waste can be composted. However, more often than not, it ends up in landfills! Landfills are among the biggest contributors of soil pollution and we can reduce their impact by diverting waste that ends up there. In fact, roughly 80% of the items buried in landfills could be recycled.
We can do better – the power to divert waste from landfills is in within our control and the effects directly impact our very own communities, towns and families. At Phoenix Public Market we’re dedicated to reduce waste in our community by increasing our understanding of how to properly sort waste. Let’s see how much market waste we can divert from landfills… Is it in you?
